Ignoring local housing providers, the Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday left in place its local eviction moratorium and rent freeze, keeping the measures tied to the city’s ongoing COVID-19 state of emergency.

The city’s moratorium allows renters with a COVID-19 related hardship to defer their rent payments for the indefinite duration of the local emergency. Renters will have 12 months after the local emergency period ends to repay the back rent before they can face eviction.
